Yes, they sound like the Pogues - and yes, "Another Bag of Bricks," reminiscent of the Pogues' "Turkish Song of the Damned" but the Pogues are no more (at least at the moment) and Flogging Molly add a slightly heavier touch to their Irish music, and the result is amazing ! This album has no weak track and the guys play with so much 'power' that you just can't stop repeating the CD over and over again. The production is tight and if you are looking for the missing link between the Pogues and Dropkick Murphys, look no further !

"Drunken Lullabies" is another absolutely magnificent album from Flogging Molly.
Dave King and Co. are back with all the frantic energy and irish pride that gained them so many fans in their debut album, "Swagger." Old fans will be instantly familiar with the kicking sound of the title track "Drunken Lullabies" and the much more laid back "If I Ever Leave This World Alive," which brings back memories of "The Worst Day Since Yesterday." The high energy tracks continue with a great new song, "The Kilburn High Road" and a great studio rendition of "Swagger."
Where this album outshines it's predecessor, however, is in the final few tracks, which really give an indication how the band is growing musically and has tons of potential to be even better. "Another Bag of Bricks" has a great sound that is very distinct and different from a lot of the other stuff Flogging Molly has done before...it represents a great middle ground between the frantic tracks like "Lullabies" and "The Kilburn High Road" and the slower "If I Ever Leave This World Alive."
The final track, "The Son Never Shines (On Closed Doors)," is Flogging Molly at it's best...Lyrics sung by King with the kind of emotion and beauty that hit you square in the heart. Songs like this make me think that the best is definately yet to come from these guys and the road there is going to be musical magic.
All in all, "Drunken Lullabies" is an awesome CD that deserves attention and respect. Order it and find the Irishman in you...

Flogging Molly is the band that got me interested in punk. I wasn't really into it, and my friend was having me listen to a Warped Tour Cd that had "What's Left of the Flag" on it. After I heard that I made him play it again I think 10 or 11 times. I instantly went out and bought this album, and eventually got all three albums and went to a live concert. If you ever get a chance to, these guys are a must live. Best Concert I have ever been to. This album is my personal favorite, and almost every song is fantastic, it's an album that you have no need to push "shuffle" on, just sit back and listen. That is, if you can sit still, it's almost impossible. The music just makes you want to grab a Guiness and pick a fight. If you have an open mind, or enjoy punk or celtic music, this is a must. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!!

As a 39 year old headbanger, I was doing some research trying to find out what became of Dave King after he left one of my favorite early 80's bands FASTWAY. (Dave and Fast Eddie Clark ruled!) I stumbled onto Flogging Molly on All Music Guide and decided to give it a shot. WOW. Being older and not just a one dimensional metal head anymore, this cd opened up my ears to a whole differnt sound. The blend of Irish folk with punk rock is certainly new to me, but I love it! From the fast opener "Drunken Lullabies" to the somber closer, "Sun Never Shines", I was simply blown away; "Kilburn High Road" will be worn of my disc by tommorow, my absolute favorite! Dave and the band's writing is exceptional, the tales they tell interesting. And while I doubt Dave can belt out "Say What You Will" like he did in 1983, his voice can still reach the higher octives just fine. By all means get this one, you wont regret it.

My boyfriend sent me this last year during finals week. Damn him (just kidding). Within the first day of getting it I burned out the batteries on my discman from listening to it continuously over and over. It's a harder-edged and angrier sound than Swagger, but just as good, and just like Swagger it's impossible to sit still while listening to it. Great!

I never really was into punk music too much. I thought it was too much screaming, and not enough instrumentation. THen, I discovered Flogging Molly, one of the greatest things to ever happen. I listened to Drunken Lullabies, and was immedietely hooked on this band. THis is an amazing CD that truly deserves recognition. This was the first Flogging Molly CD I listened to, and got me completely hooked on this Irish/Folksy punk band.

Track by Track:

1. "Drunken Lullabies": Brilliant opening, with a cool sounding banjo in the beginning, an awesome fiddle, and some great lyrics. 10/10

2. "Whats Left of the Flag": Another awesome song, with even better lyrics than drunken lullabies. Its not as catchy musically, but only barely so. Many consider this one of their best because of its bitter lyrics. Again, a great violin, and some really good singing. 9.5/10

3. "May the living be dead in our wake": Its similar sounding to the first two, except instead of a violin, there's a flute, which makes an awesome sound. Its still fast paced and upbeat, but more soothing than the first two songs. 9/10

4. "If I ever leave this world alive": A slow ballad that is remarkably well done. After three fast songs, it may not seem as good, but give this song some time, and you'll enjoy it. The singing is excellent here, showing Dave King's vocal power and range. 8/10

5. "The Kilburn High Road": Again, another fast paced one with a killer guitar solo, and another flute. Similar sounding to "May the living..." with a VERY catchy chorus that I always find myself singing. 9/10

6. "Rebels of a sacred heart": This is a different style song.
